52 Blessing Project Week Fifty-Six

“Be steadfast and immovable,
always abounding in good works”
Mosiah 5:15
I'm grateful for the strong youth within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This Saturday watching the youth of the Kimball Stake in Arizona dance was fun. I was also touched watching them sing at the end of the performance. They sang "Steadfast in You".

I stayed for two whole performance and sat in the middle on the front row each time. There was a tall young man with curly blonde hair who was right in front of me both times. I could tell he had a great time because he danced with lots of energy. Both times when the person said the prayer at the close event, this young man dropped to his knees for the prayer. The rest of the youth stayed standing, there was over three hundred of them. It was such a wonderful visual to me of this young man who reverently and without thought of what others might think, dropped to his knees during a prayer.
Then last night I attended a fireside with Rachel and Joey. It was a testimony meeting for the youth who had participated in the dance festival. It was amazing to hear them talk of love of the Savior, and how the Spirit helps them. I don't know any of the youth in that Stake, not one. However, they certainly touched me and give me faith for the future.

Steadfast In You

We believe and we understand
This great plan we are living
We will rise and we will stand
We can feel your love burning
Within us
And we will be

Steadfast in you
Steady and true
Abounding in the good works
That you sent us here to do
Like a million stars
Lighting up the night
We are your youth
Ever strong
Ever true
Ever steadfast in you

We will be true to you
Fighting with the sword of truth
We set our sights on eternity
‘Til that day when we meet you
In your glory
We will be


Like a mighty army
Moves the church of God
Steadfast we are treading
Where the saints have trod

I teach CTR 8 at church, and several of the kids in my class (I have 9 kids) will kneel whenever we pray. I think it is pretty special, almost like a family prayer.
